News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

The Cock Inn (later to become the Cat & Cracker) is on the left. The original Cock Inn, after spending some time as the Post Office is now the Hogarth Inn, so called because William Hogarth is said to have visited there in 1732. Picture probably taken around 1910.

Does anyone know when it was closed and demolished?

Does anyone know what happened to the Cat and Cracker pub on in Grain?  We used to go out there on our motorbikes to see bands play in the early 80s, and I see the name has disappeared from view. (Anyone else remember "Chevogue", "Killer Rabbits", other local bands? Sorry, thread drift.)

As I recall, it was named after the catalytic cracker, part of the refinery complex, so maybe it disappeared when the latter was decommissioned?

The Cat and Cracker is a row of houses now...
